Thanks for the kind words, and for digging ME out of your noise. I 
can hear quite well here, both because I'm lucky to be able to live 
in a fairly quite place, and also because I've really worked at it. 
In addition to serious chokes on feedlines and noise sources, I've 
also put in two DXE reversible Beverages, one of which is headed 
your way. I can usually hear pretty well on the vertical (which is 
NOT grounded), and When I hear something but don't hear it quite 
well enough, I switch to the Beverages. Depending on the vertical 
angle at which the wavefront is arriving, the Beverage may not help, 
but usually it's good for about 6 dB S/N to the east coast, and 
often to a lot of points in between.
